'I study creative approaches and Stanislavski, Meyerhold. My favorite author is Anton Chekhov. In spite of my great desire to learn Russian and huge love for your culturue it is my first time in Russia. It's an amazing experience!'
Therese Keplinger is a student from Austria. She stareted to study Russian at school. Her dream is to become an interpreter. 'I am here for the first time, and so far I can say that Russia and Austria are very different. We have already the chance to walk around the city, it is very beautiful!'
For Peter Fasching from Austria, on the contrary, Russia is not a novelty. Most of all he is interested in Russian History, especially the Soviet period. 'In the future, I want to be a diplomat in Poland or Russia, so it is important for me to study Russian. I can say that I know about your country quite a lot, but I want to keep learning. And this summer school is a great project that will help me. I am very grateful to HSE - Nizhny Novgorod for this opportunity.'
